Dental implants are artificial teeth that can replace natural teeth that have been lost, damaged, or decayed. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are permanently attached to the jawbone and can restore up to 99% of the use and functionality of natural teeth. Dental implants typically consist of three parts: the implant post, the abutment, and the restoration. First, a titanium implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone. Then, an abutment is attached to the post, which serves as an anchor for the custom-made replacement tooth (the restoration).

At our Tinton Falls, NJ practice, we understand that every patient is unique. We create custom-made restorations for each patient, using their precise measurements and specifications. Our implant specialist, Dr. LoPresti, is highly skilled and experienced in implant fabrication, surgery, and final placement. He will work with you personally to ensure that your restorations look beautiful, function flawlessly, and provide many years of reliable use.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    The procedure for dental implants begins with a consultation and examination by a dentist of the location in the mouth where the implant is being considered. The dentist will evaluate if any neighboring teeth need to be extracted and determine the type of bone graft necessary.

    After a few months of healing, the dental implant is placed into the bone, and a healing cap is put over it so the healing phase can start. It is crucial to have regular check-ups with the dentist every six months to monitor the healing process.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    There are two main types of dental implants – endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most commonly used option, consisting of a titanium metal rod placed in the jawbone and a supporting post that secures a dental crown or bridge. On the other hand, all-on-4 implants are a revolutionary dental implant system that supports an entire top or bottom denture using just four implants. These implants are strategically placed to keep the replacement teeth steady and secure. The benefit of using four implants is that it promotes faster patient recovery and reduces the likelihood of complications from possible implant failure.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Tooth loss can cause problems like difficulty in chewing and speaking clearly. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth shifts, facial structure changes, jawbone deterioration, and bite imbalances. These issues develop when no root system maintains bone health and alignment over time. Dental implants are the most effective solution to overcome short-term dental challenges and avoid long-term problems related to tooth loss. They act as an artificial root system and support a prosthetic tooth.
